I plan on spending the pre-Christmas season freeloading off French friends, eating their foie gras, and drinking their champagne.
They were starting the first and only foie gras farm in the United States.
For example, foie gras is not an indigenous food, but they are producing it in Peru today.
1818, short for pâté de foie gras (see pate (n.2)). Pâté de foie gras (1827 in English) is literally "pie of fat liver;" originally served in a pastry (as still in Alsace), the phrase now chiefly in English with reference to the filling.
